ready to go. and we are going to remind the world once more just why it is that the united states of america is the greatest nation on earth. thank you. >> the big question this morning. how does obama win? >> president obama is out of ide ideas. he's out of excuses. and in 2012 it's time to make sure we put him out of office. >> our political round table is here this morning to weigh in. republican senator from new hampshire kelly ayotte and tom brokaw, and chuck todd, plus economist diane swan. >> good morngz. ohio and virginia is where president obama was yesterday officially kicking off his re-election bid. as we went through the features, we learn a lot about how the president is going to try to win. that is the big question. how does he do it? one, he makes the case for hanging on even in this tough economy. two, and you'll hear a lot of that, it is the contrast with mitt romney. he will try to misqualify romney as an acceptable alternative on the economy, and the economy is tough. look at the job numbers on friday. sluggish job creation is still a problem for this administr

've already obama/biden. you are looking at the vice presidential candidate of the united states. >> has it annoyed you that there's been all this buzz about, well, if the president put in secretary clinton he'd be a shoo-in for re-election? >> the thing that aannoys me that somehow president clinton is weak -- president obama is weak. that's not directed at me. it's unfair. i think -- look we have the strongest candidate. in every presidential race, david, it's the only race in which the public demands one threshold test be met. is the individual strong, and is their character consistent with what they say they'll do? is their character strong enough to say they'll do it? we have the best candidate, man. he has a backbone like a ramrod. i think we have clearly the best candidate. >> is it going to be a close election? >> it may be close electorally. i think all laekdzs are close, and my grandfather used to say who was a good athlete. joe, remember any team can beat any other team in any given day, but they're going to need a better game plan than the one they have now about how they res

the experience the private equity. >> it's the leader of the united states. it's not the short-term return of profits to the few, but a long-term economy that creates jobs for the many. >> let's start down that road. why has unemployment come down? unemployment's come down? because participation in the workforce is at the lowest point it's been in three decades. people are retiring early because they can't find a job. people have given up looking. if you look at the gallup surveys, the number of those who are underemployed and quit looking is 19%. this is a disastrous administration, and candidly if you want to get into a fight over debt, from 47% in the economy to 74% in three and a half years. this is why obama will have a hard time this fall. he can't fight over jobs because he isn't creating them. he can't fight over debt, and he has policies that people find unacceptable and romney has a straightforward case. can you afford four more years of barack obama? can you afford four more years of this economy? and can you afford four more years of this kind of debt? as david pointed out, the

experience. >> it's a part of it. what the president of the united states, what the leader of the economy must be concerned about is not the short term return of profits but a long-term economy that creates jobs for the many. >> let's start down that job. why is unemployment down? because participation in the workforce is at the lowest point it's been. people are retiring early because they can't find a job. people have given up looking. the real number of those who are under employed, unemployed and quit working is 19%. this is a disaster. if you want to fight over debt in an administration which raised the national debt from 47% of the economy to 74% in three and a half years, this is what obama will have a hard time with in the fall. he can't fight over jobs. he isn't creating them. he's increasing debt. he has policies at least half the american people find unacceptable. romney has a straightforward case. can you afford four more years of barack obama? can you afford four more years of this economy, of this kind of debt? or do you want somebody as governor that the unemployment rate u

. there's a tremendous amount of balance that's required to be president of the united states especially to bring our country back from the disastrous aftereffects from the bush recession and the bush job losses and the huge amount of our deficit, 55% of which was caused by policies, tax cuts that benefited the wealthiest of americans rather than investing in a better future and the better economy with greater opportunities that our kids deserved. >> at this stage in 1984, no one on the reagan team was talking about the carter recession because they were talking about the reagan recovery. they were talking about the rate of job creation under reagan. they were talking about the success of reagan. this is an administration that went from yes, we can to why we couldn't. george w bush is the why we couldn't apparently. the fact that this president's been president for three and a half years, he had a chance to fix it. it ain't fixed and the country knows it's not fixed. it's not fixed on gasoline. it's not fixed on the economy, it's not fixed on the deficit and romney at least has a better
